    The Owners' Manual for the Human Body--HEALTH SOLUTIONS: Hypertension

    in Education

    You are HYPE-, HYPE-, HYPERTENSIVE!!


    Hypertension is the plague of modern society. Younger and younger people are diagnosed as hypertensive and put on “medi-sin” to “stabilize” this health ''problem''. Why is this happening so rampantly and why is there no cure? Once given the drug FOR (not against) hypertension you are instructed that this is for life.


    Did you know that according to a survey by the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) in July 2003, despite the number of drugs available and the number of prescriptions written no real progress has been made in controlling high blood pressure among the U.S. adult population??


    Another study reported by the Archives of Internal Medicine in 2000 revealed 30 percent of patients with mild to moderate hypertension responded well to a placebo – MORE PROOF that they were able to control their blood pressure without medi-sin.
    A study by the British Medical Association in 2003 revealed 97 percent of people taking drugs for high blood pressure had suffered significant side effects at some point during treatment.


    All this is known so why do doctors continue with existing treatments?


    Is elevated blood pressure dangerous for our health?


    What are the causes of elevated blood pressure, should they be interfered with and how to naturally control it....


    This Saturday we will address those issues and we will give you guidance toward healing your circulatory system in a very easy non intrusive way.

    The SYNCRENICITY of the 21st Century Superhuman: Alkalinity w/Victoria Maree

    in Education

    Presented by India Irie, Rhonda Paolo & Kami Be w Honoured Guest, Victoria Maree


    The standard American diet consists of mostly acid forming foods. Fake fats, sugar, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), bleached white flours made into breads and pastry is extremely acid forming. You should focus on eating a diet of 60-80% alkaline foods daily. Real nutrition can be found in a diet high in a wide variety of veggies that are eaten every day, all day! Focus on fresh organic green veggies, fresh smoothies as well as green super foods such as chlorella. Fruits of all types, even citrus fruits that are considered acid, are all alkaline forming. The increased consumption of fruits and vegetables in an alkaline diet may benefit bone health, reduce muscle loss through lack of physical activity as well as reduce cases of other chronic diseases such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes and stroke.


    The true benefit of eating an alkaline diet is that it is high in the minerals and phytonutrients needed by your body to grow and maintain itself. An increase in magnesium that may enter the cell is another added benefit of the alkaline diet. This is one of the greatest benefits of eating lots of green leafy vegetables. Readily available magnesium, which is required to activate vitamin D, would result in numerous added benefits in the body. Work a variety of dark leafy greens into every meal over the course of the day. Order some spinach as a side dish, add a garden salad to your lunch, snack on kale chips, make a green veggie juice smoothie or mix up some powdered greens with your early morning juice.

    Obesity - An Epidemic Affecting Children and Adults

    in Health

    Quoting the American Psychological Association; Excess weight and obesity in childhood and adolescence has become a serious public health concern in the United States. The “obesity epidemic” has particularly exploded in the last 25 years. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the prevalence of obesity has more than doubled among children ages two to five (5 percent to 12.4 percent) and ages six to 11 (6.5 percent to 17 percent). In teens ages 12 to 19, prevalence rates have tripled (5 percent to 17.6 percent). 


    This has significant implications for the life expectancy of obese youth who are likely to experience higher rates of hypertension, elevated cholesterol, and Type 2 diabetes than their parents. This may be the first generation to have a shorter life expectancy than the one immediately before them. There is some encouraging news that growth in childhood obesity prevalence has slowed in recent years, however serious efforts are still required to fully reverse the trend.


    From a study in West Virginia - According to the National Institutes of Health, obesity and overweight together are the second leading cause of preventable death in the United States, close behind tobacco use. An estimated 300,000 deaths per year are due to the obesity epidemic.
